Of course not. It's Apple. The term "GPU" is blasphemy; customer must NOT know about tech side of their device.

Umm..... wasn't that app around like since ever??? It was included with my MSI 560 Ti, I think... oh no wait, I think that was Asus' app for the mobo control/CPU OC from the phone:)

This has been out for android for sometime now.

It works well, but some parts of it are buggy.

Hmm... This could come in handy to quickly change fan speeds instead of alt+tab-ing to change it.

Yet oddly enough the iPhone 4s has the most powerful GPU of any smartphone currently on the market.

It took them a while; before that, Android phones had the first place in that for a loooong time.

Well yeah they release a new iPhone once a year, Android has a new phone every other week.

Though the iPad2 has a much better GPU then what you get with an Android tablet and it's been out for quite awhile now, and will continue to have the best gpu until probably Asus gets its Tegra 3 tablets out this month or next.

1. A Windows XP SP3 (with .NET 2)/Vista/7 system with an MSI-based discrete graphics card and is able to connect to internet/intranet.

So wait a minute, you are using iOS to overclock a system, that is not supported on Mac OSX?
What about the Android version, can it be used to overclock on Linux?

Little weird that the peripherals that run specific operating systems can not function on compatible operating systems.

Linux and Mac OSX support? yes please!

Qualcomm MSM8960 is going to beat it, current testing information says it has same row computational power as iPad2. But don't forget that PowerVR SGX processors are not Apple's product but Imagination Technologies'.

Actually, it works with a lot of recent cards, MSI or not. I had a MSI Geforce 210 in here and used it, then put in a EVGA Geforce 550ti and it worked just fine with it. I tried it on a machine with an ati x1300 and it didn't work though.

Everybody should run fold@home on their GPU @CPU when they aren't using it. Compute for science

I've looked into those, but there's no proven benefit to running such programs. Besides, it'll make my components run harder, hotter, and wear out faster, as well as wear out my fans faster because they have to work more. No thanks.

Seeing you missed vast chunks of the news item I'm sure MSI wont mourn the loss of a brain as sharp as yours.

Thanks for making it real for these crybabies! Wait till an Android phone comes out in 6 months from now with a more powerful GPU and these guys all jump like trained dogs to say it's better (almost a year later)...

It's okay to hate, I'm just going bring it back home with a highly fragmented, insecure Android that's got a store full of craplications and spy/malware on hardware that requires you to root it to run properly all so the owner can say it's an "open"...

I can bring the hate right back at ya! BOOYA!
